A beautiful building but not much in the way of tours and experiences. There is a free audioguide but even that is a bit frustrating because if somebody else clicked on the same section you need to wait for it to finish before you can...More

So worth visiting. The audio tour of the history is free and worth the walk around the visitor center. Take the guided tour of the building, it is worth the hour. Excellent experience.

Great historic place. I really didn’t get to spend enough time. But I had a mix of work and tour. You can’t go to The Hague without making a visit.

The peace palace was a truly beautiful place with amazing history. The pricing is fair and cheaper than most museums in Amsterdam. Would recommend peace palace over other sightseeing in Amsterdam and surroundings.

One could not be faulted for the Peace Palace in the Hague as a Church front with a cursory first glance. This majestically constructed building is an international law administrative building in the Hague, Netherlands. And in the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the International Court...More

The Guided Tour wasn’t available on the day we went but the place didn’t strike me as too formal.

Hi Experts ! I will be making a Day Trip from Amsterdam to Den Haag and then on to Delft. After visiting the Peace Palace, would like to proceed to Delft by Tram 1.

I will be in Hague in July. Does anyone know if tours of the Peace Palace will resume, either weekdays or weekends? If so, is there a way to get advanced reservations? Thanks for your help!

The site keeps on showing 'booking will be possible in a few weeks time'. But longer than a few weeks :-( Maybe ask them, or Hague tourist office, by e-mail? All the best, <Erik> & [Sandya]

Day trip to The Hague: how much is realistic? (11 Replies)
We will be in Amsterdam for a few days pre-cruise and want to take a day trip to The Hague on July 13th. The list of things to see is: The Peace Palace, International Criminal Court, Escher Museum, Mauritshuis museum, and possibly Sheveningen waterfront. (This list is not in order of priority) How much is realistically possible to see in one day? Thanks for your help!

Response fromBreda_Travelgirl|
It’s a busy day, but if you start early it should be doable. But first of all you should check if there is a hearing scheduled at the International Criminal Court. If not, I wouldn’t recommend a visit because there isn’t really that much to see otherwise. On July 13th the sun only sets at around 10PM, so I would leave Scheveingen for the end of the day. You can have dinner there and watch the sun set into the sea.
